(Nasdaq: VDSI) (www.vasco.com), a leading software security company specializing in strong authentication products and services, will launch DIGIPASS 320 today at Cartes in Paris, France.

The device is extremely well suited for mass deployments in retail and corporate banking and provides banks and other organizations with comprehensive and scalable two-factor authentication solutions.
The e-signature solution supports up to four different applications and offers one-time password, challenge/response and signing functionalities. With its enhanced scrolling menu and a dedicated OK’ and ‘Cancel’ button, DIGIPASS 320 offers a very intuitive user experience in a streamlined design. Up to four different languages can be supported and application messages can be fully customized.
“As online attacks become increasingly sophisticated, banks and other organizations will continue their quest for more secure solutions,” says Jan Valcke, President and COO at VASCO Data Security. ”With this WYSIWYS e-signature solution, VASCO meets today’s complex customer requirements for high-level security solutions that do not impede user convenience and we reinforce our product offering for the financial market.”
